i am currently torn between brewsmith, and a free website called brew smarts.  i also have been using brewpal app on my i phone.  i like all three of them. it is just a matter of getting the printouts right that i can play with and modify.  i usually do my own calculations on top./

Thanks Fred, that looks really nice. I think the new interface will take a little getting used to, but it looks like it will be a big improvement.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

A Mac version too! One reason I still have an old PC at home is because of Beersmith. Looks like one less reason to hang on to it. I also like the forthcoming add-on manager--my biggest peeve with Beersmith is add-on management.

I also use BeerSmith, it's a good one; no issue with it so far.
Watch out for those Cross Dressing Amateurs!

Brad just announced BeerSmith 2.0 Release date (Mid June)
This software runs on both MAC and PC.  I have been beta testing it and it is awesome, even compared to the earlier version.
Details here:

$16.95 for existing Beersmith users until the launch at NHC...I can live with that.

Sorry...late out of the gate but I want to give two mugs up for Beersmith!

It's saved me on brewday more than a few times. Looking forward to the new release.

Good deal.  I'll definitely be upgrading.  I hope I have my product registration key for 1.4 somewhere in my email at home...

If you don't have it there is a good chance that Brad has it.  Did you order online?  Then I'm sure he has it.

If you're already running 1.4, open it and go to the help tab, click "enter registration key".  It's right there.

Now if only he'd offer a discount on the kindle edition of the book for loyal users. :)

Hmm, I've got my original copy/key I bought a ways back plus a CD Rom version/key that was some recent comp swag.  Upgrade both or just one?  Decisions, decisions...

If it was recent enough, you might qualify for a free upgrade.  Check out the website.  I don't know if it will apply to prizes though.
